As Radio Slave, amongst other monikers, Matt Edwards has made some of the defining music of modern club culture. It’s not only his production and DJ work that makes Edwards so revered though, his label Rekids has been hugely prolific and respected since its inception in 2006.
Aside from his handful of appearances on leading imprints like Running Back and R&S, as well as some much-loved remixes, Edwards has concentrated the vast majority of his output on his own label. This approach has given him an instantly recognizable and singular discography, a go-to artist for DJs across the house and techno worlds.
With Rekids, he has been driving fresh talent to the forefront. Diving into the back catalogue is like a techno encyclopedia: Mr G, Carl Craig, Nina Kraviz, Kenny Larkin, Gerd Janson, Chris Liebing, Speedy J, Len Faki, Mike Banks (Underground Resistance) and many more have all released music under the label’s banner, gaining a highly devoted following.
Radio Slave sets draw from Edwards’ vast knowledge of dance music, resulting in slick and powerful journeys where numerous eras of club music align.
